What is medical negligence?

Medical negligence is when a medical professional or institution provides a substandard level of care or treatment. If medical negligence has caused you harm, pain or suffering, or resulted in further injury or worsened any pre-existing conditions, then you could be entitled to make a medical negligence claim. When you undergo medical treatment, you put your trust and health in the hands of the medical professional who is treating you. So, it can be devastating when the treatment doesn’t go as planned due to negligence or avoidable mistakes.

“Overall, I had a good experience. From a client experience perspective, the involvement of a solicitor was the last thing that I anticipated. However, I think the relationship began on the right foot. I quickly obtained a rapport with Daniel, who was appropriately supportive but also quite candid. His honesty impressed me.”

Case Study

Sarah's Story

"Now we have peace of mind"

My husband, Nick, went back and forth to the doctors for a long time and tried everything the doctor recommended. But his illness got worse, to the point that he was in agony.

In the end we got so desperate that we asked for a referral. The doctor was reluctant, so we had to consult a private hospital. That’s when we found out there was a tumour. It took years from the onset of his illness to finally start cancer treatment.

He used to be a man with a lot to live for, but in the end he was in so much pain that he withdrew from the family. He became angry that nobody had helped him sooner, and the legal team were able to give him the validation that he was desperately seeking. The NHS confirmed if they had done more, Nick would still be alive today.
